Abstract. The situation with the rapid progress of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has become the context for writing this article. The authors believe that the scientific development of sociological topics on the transformation of human capital health should be combined with the socio-philosophical discourse, which is part of modern social theory. The factor of fundamental uncertainty that affects all forms of human existence and universal relations in this context is quite significant. reflections on the universal principles of the world in connection with the coronavirus pandemic led the authors to understand the possibility of an ontological prerequisite for the growth of entropy (disorder) as a spectrum of disorganizing and destructive trends in nature and society, which reflect the modern ways of development of social systems in terms of the dichotomy of order and chaos. The pandemic began to spread rapidly in many countries, and time was lost. The leaders of many countries did not immediately realize that there is a high risk of medical and economic collapse. The proposed article is devoted to topical issues of human health capital in the context of modern shocks / turbulences, which are closely related to both the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus infection in the world and the associated unclear consequences of fundamental uncertainty. The article suggests theories, which formed the basis of the author's vision of problems of the transformation of human health capital: Marx (the commodification of medicine; new methods of production, shifts in global trading patterns); Durkheim (social theory of suicide and anomie; social rituals that shape solidarity); Weber (theory of bureaucratization and rationalization as applied to medicine and health, modern hospitals and clinics); Parsons (the concept of "the role of the patient); Bourdieu (concepts of social capital, habitus, health); Habermas (colonization of medicine and the life-world) and others. The authors believe that the COVID-19 coronavirus as a trigger triggered the socio-economic mechanisms of many systems, exposed the weakest points in the social fabric of various societies and sharply aggravated all the socio-economic imbalances that have accumulated for decades in the world and in Russia.
Key words: health, human capital of health, COVID-19 pandemic, health system, health sociology, crisis.
